CANADIAN PROFESSIONAL DISC JOCKEY ASSOCIATION
Inspiring all DJs through Education, Networking and Support
As your not-for-profit representative for our industry, with the public, and with the Canadian government, the Canadian Professional Disc Jockey Association, is working alongside you as we attempt to navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, we are proud to share a new membership announcement.
Just two short years ago, the CPDJA took action based on member feedback that each membership should run for one year from the date of purchase, instead of a predefined membership calendar year. The outcome of that change has proven very successful as DJs now join the CPDJA throughout the year, knowing they will get a full 12 months of value without the penalty of lost time.
Earlier this year, as the pandemic began to take hold, the CPDJA took immediate action by providing complimentary 3-month membership extensions to all DJ and Allied Members of the association. This too was very positively received by everyone.
While we continue to evaluate the remainder of 2020 and look for innovative ways to support the programming and benefits the association provides to all of you, we are now making another change to the membership options available that we hope will provide you with additional options to suit your financial situation.
For the first time ever, a monthly DJ membership in the CPDJA is available for just $25 a month plus tax. This new, monthly recurring membership brings with it the full benefits enjoyed by all annual DJ members. This includes access to all programming (insurance, CONNECT licenses, CWDJC Replays, etc.) and marketing opportunities (listing in the Find a DJ directory, Spotlight Member DJ posts, use of the CPDJA logo on your website, etc.). This new monthly membership also provides the benefit of small monthly payments to assist with the extremely challenging financial times that we have found ourselves in.
This new payment style provides the association with the needed support to ensure it continues to deliver all that the Canadian DJ community has come to expect from us. This includes educating the public about our industry through findaDJ.ca, our recent lobbying efforts with the Canadian government, our COVID-19 resources for DJs, the communities the CPDJA continues to operate in various places online and offline and so much more.
For those who would like to maintain their memberships on an annual basis, they get 12 months for the price of 10! We have reduced the annual fee to $250 + tax (save $50).
With many of our members involved in live streaming, drive-by events and properly distanced events, the importance of maintaining adequate insurance (for example) is still as important as ever. We want to help all DJs maintain to access to this and all of the benefits membership provides.
The CPDJA will continue to support you through this time with unique programming, support services, information about provincial re-opening strategies, economic and mental health resources and ways to reinvent ourselves as Canadian DJs for a new era.
On behalf of the Canadian Professional Disc Jockey Association, please continue contributing to the efforts that are helping manage this pandemic. We have much to be proud of, keep up the great work!
* These membership changes will remain in effect until January 2021 at which time they will be reviewed to determine their long term viability.
